 Is warfare against the enemy
 Is pleasing to God
 Is a command from the Lord
 Is where we experience the Presence of the God
 Is vital for spiritual health

In a Place of Worship/ Church Service
 Sets the atmosphere for God to move
 Releases the Glory of God
 Puts the people on one accord
 Makes the enemy flee
 Helps the people to focus on God alone
 Is a sacrifice unto God
 Sets the tone for healing & deliverance (miracles)
